Summary

In many Western countries social welfare payments are increasingly being made conditional on recipients doing voluntary work or attending job training courses, a system known as #xE2;#xAC;Swelfare-to-work#xE2;#xAC; or #xE2;#xAC;Sworkfare#xE2;#xAC;. Although social welfare in Asia is very different to the West, with much smaller social welfare budgets and a much higher reliance on family networks to provide support, the workfare approach is also being adopted in many Asian countries. This book provides a comprehensive overview of how social welfare in handled in leading East Asian countries, analysing current trends, explaining the social and political background driving reform, describing new programmes and assessing their effectiveness.
